“where mellow bourbon is made”
One trip to our historic distillery and you’ll begin to understand why our Bourbon has come to be so mellow. Nestled in the quiet Kentucky countryside near Lawrenceburg, and on the banks of the scenic Salt River, the Four Roses Distillery makes the trip to this very mellow place all that more rewarding. The Distillery was built in 1910 and features a unique Spanish Mission-Style architecture rarely seen in Kentucky. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and operates continuously, except for the summer months, typically July through mid-September. Closed Thanksgiving Day, December 24, 25, 31, and January 1. No admission charge. Monday – Saturday, 9 A.M. – 3 P.M. EST Sunday 12 P.M. – 3 P.M. EST Tours start on the hour. Gift shop open Monday- Saturday, 9 A.M. – 4 P.M. EST Sunday, 12 P.M. – 4 P.M. EST
From a rotgut whiskey to a more modern tasting bourbon, Four Roses can hold it's own among the more popular bourbons.
It began when Paul Jones, Jr., the founder of Four Roses Bourbon, became smitten by the beauty of a Southern belle. It is said that he sent a proposal to her, and she replied that if her answer were “Yes,” she would wear a corsage of roses on her gown to the upcoming grand ball.
Paul Jones waited for her answer excitedly on that night of the grand ball…when she arrived in her beautiful gown, she wore a corsage of four red roses. He later named his Bourbon “Four Roses” as a symbol of his devout passion for the lovely belle, a passion he thereafter transferred to making his beloved Four Roses Bourbon.
Four Roses Distillery is right down the road from Wild Turkey, and they have 10 different varieties of bourbon (and a really unusual, Spanish-style building that houses the distillery).
